Utica, NY— Today, Congresswoman Claudia Tenney (NY-22) toured the Utica Public Library’s new children’s reading room as part of the Rebuilding our Communities Week, the second week of Renew NY-22. Rebuilding our Communities starts with providing funding to proven programs that help those who are truly needy. From Community Action Agencies to Rehabilitation Facilities, Rep. Tenney has championed programs that provide targeted assistance to programs with the mission to give our vulnerable a hand up. Utica Public Library provides quality resources and services to stimulate creativity and intellectual curiosity that facilitates lifelong learning skills for our community.

“The Utica Public Library’s new children’s reading room provides the resources that empower young people to nurture the habit of reading as well as providing them with important technological resources they may not have at home,” said Rep. Tenney.  “Rebuilding our communities starts with supporting organizations like the Utica Public Library. As a lifelong library card holder, I understand the importance of ensuring our public libraries receive adequate funding so they can continue to give back to our community.”
